This┬árecipe is super easy. My husband and I have this on a regular basis. It’s something we came up with one night when we were craving shrimp but wanted something simple since we couldn’t batter and fry it. This is great with a salad or steamed veggies. It’s also a great source of protein.

1. In a large skillet melt 2 tbsp. of butter.

2. Add shrimp and cook over med-high heat for 2 minutes.

3. Sprinkle Tony’s seasoning over shrimp and stir again. Once most of the butter is cooked down remove from heat. Serve warm with veggie of choice.
